Suffice it to say, I strayed from my best intentions on each of these. I plan to work on completing them. First up, a favorite designer of mine, Jeannette Douglas' My Stitching Treasures. I love her color and fiber choices. And I already have the burl wood box to mount this in when I finish stitching.
Next, Drawn Thread's Random Thoughts. Not sure why I put this one down. I am sure I was tempted by something new or jumped on a stitch-a-long or class piece.
I think between this one and the Stitching Treasures I can work on a motif at a time and change up between the two. I used to like to stitch on several projects in a rotation. I find I get more stitching done if I concentrate on fewer pieces at a time. It saves time spent on getting up to speed on a different project every day. But I do think on these two at least completing a motif at a time that I can switch between the two easily.
Number three in my rotation is the Elizabeth Pusey Sampler from Chester County. I really liked this and really wanted to stitch stitch stitch these until I got going and it is full of Algerian Eyes. Not a difficult stitch but it does make for slow progress.
Last, a favorite of mine and one that is not that old. Cornwall Cottage from Rosewood Manor. I started this last May and I got pulled off by class pre-stitching or SAL's. I can get a page done in about 10 ten days. Granted, I don't eat, clean the house or shower......lol!
I think the first three are doable in 2016. As for Cornwall Cottage, I have two of twelve pages completed and will count this as a win if I can complete at least four more pages in 2016. Got to remember it is about enjoying the journey so for at least piece I will stitch without stressing over the completion.
